's not ignorance it's cycle. could barack obama be the democrats ronald reagan. there's a big thought. it comes from andrew sullivan and the front cover of news week. he says obama has a chance to transform american politics in the next four years if he gets the next four years. >>> world leaders seek his guidance. presidential candidates don't dare reject his invitations. bill clinton has become president of the world, but today mitt romney also is there genuflecting at the clinton global initiative today. we know who he wants to win the presidency this time, his name is barack obama, and next time her name is hillary rodham clinton. >>> there's been no shortage of reaction to what happened at the end of last night seahawks/packers game. what could make wisconsin governor scott walker become pro union? how about lousy reffing? we'll be right back. >> the lone receiver to the left. the packers playing at the goal line. as wilson struggles to keep it alive. the game's final play. it's a wilson lob to the end zone which is fumbled by tate with jennings simultaneous. who has it? who did they give
sure to gall republicans, he says president obama could become the democrats' ronald reagan. sullivan writes, quote, he will emerge as an iconic figure who struggled through a recession and terrorized world. reshaping the economy within it, passing universal health care, strafing the ranks of al qaeda, presiding over a civil rights revolution, and then enjoying the fruits of the recovery. with me now is "newsweek's" andrew sullivan, also editor of "the dish" and also joining me is ari melber, a correspondent for "the nation." gentlemen, thank you. our main focus is on you and your big brain, andrew, my friend, because it's hard for me to figure out what "newsweek" has been doing the last few months because every front cover is different from the other one. one trashes obama. this one brilliantly i think celebrates the potential of a certain election result. give me your sense, how you got into this idea of even thinking about the next four years given all our focus here at "hardball" and elsewhere on what's going to happen in six weeks. >> because he, the president, has been thinking
on the ghost of ronald reagan is he could not have survived in the current iteration of the republican party. ronald reagan said no to war with the soviet union. ronald reagan actually said yes to reducing the number of nuclear weapons in both sides arsenal's. ronald reagan was a figure almost more comfortable in barack obama's democratic party and his wing -- >> don't say that too loudly. >> check your twitter feed. >> just exploded. >> we have to take a break but we are waiting for the president to speak at the clinton global initiative. meanwhile, president obama and governor romney also spoke at nbc's education nation summit. big times. we will discuss their remarks. also paul ryan weighs in on the last night's nfl controversy and brings it back to, guess who, president obama. all of that is next on "now." want to try to crack it? yeah, that's the way to do it! now we need a little bit more... a little bit more vanilla? this is great! [ male announcer ] at humana, we believe there's never been a better time to share your passions... because the results... are you having fun doing this? y
place. but enough from me. art laffer, and a former adviser to former president ronald reagan. i thought you and milton friedman told me that the tax burden is in fact the rate of spending. why are these economists saying it is not true? >> who knows. you are right government spending is taxation. pure and simple. it doesn't recreate resources it takes them from one group and gives them to another. every time we have had massive government spending we have had a problem in the economy. it is true. in 2007, 2008 when the crash occurred those were the biggest periods of government spending increase. as you may have seen my piece on 34 countries, those that have the biggest spending plans have the biggest declines. and the same thing happened after world war ii as you know. we had massive spending cuts from 44 to 46. and the economy boomed as never before. >> so here is the thing. this is the national association of business economists. this is not the worker's socialist union. and look, these guys are coming out, they are coming out with two points that i have made on the show. they are in
was a segregationist. >> and he sign the southern manifesto, . ronald reagan opened his campaign in new jersey, then detroit, and when he was in detroit he made fun of jimmy carter for actually giving his opening speech in the home of the kkk that time. i would add that jimmy carter also endorsed maddox for governor, the segregationist restaurant owner who chased blacks from his restaurant. al gore, well, of course his father, al gore sr., voted against the '64 civil rights act, an unrepentant segregationist. all the segregationists in the senate were all democrats, remained liberal. strom thurman, 18 years after running as a dixie-crat, not a dixie-can, because the segregation wing, the racial wing, always part of the democratic party, the same way the abortion ladies are part of the democratic party now, and they've tried to make up for this awful history by, first of all, reversing the parties they call the democrat segregationist southerners, again not all southerners -- >> sean: when you look at demographics, in a sense these tactics, class warfare, scaring granny, and the race card has b
of the money we donate. we're donating money to government. we got a $16 trillion debt. as ronald reagan said, we have a debt, not because the american people are taxed too little, it's because their government spends too much. >> sean: i'm analyzing mr. common ground, your partner over here. >> yes. >> sean: what he's really saying, cal, we've got a false narrative, it's 14%, it doesn't tell the whole story, doesn't say this is the government's second bite at romney's apple, so he's going to run with it because demagoguing an issue work. >> with we the people, we are the government. >> sean: so romney pays taxes one time, 35%, whatever it is. >> he didn't pay it, but that's all right. >> sean: bob, he should be in jail. >> i want to know where harry reid's source is. he's proven he's paid taxes. where is harry reid apologizing? >> if both parties had the courage, democrats and republicans alike to deal with the one thing that matters, which is entitlements. >> i agree. >> i'll give ryan credit. i don't agree with his proposals, but at least he came out with something. romney campaign told hi
about is taxes and all they want to talk about is how bad the government is. i voted for ronald reagan in 1980. i do have a disclaimer. i was drunk that day. but he made -- you know, ronald reagan, one thing he did was he made people distrust their government. and really a lot of people hate their government. because of -- >> now, mud cat, let me ask you a question. let me ask you a question. i didn't want to cut you off. but i have to get to you because i don't want to run out of time on you and steve. i've been waiting all day because i knew you were coming on. i've looked at the polls and i understand group after group the president's establishing a commanding lead. latinos up 45 points. he leads women by 19 points. catholics by 15 points. all of them i could understand given the policy positions of this campaign. but here's one that is right down your alley to explain to me. romney is losing the nascar base, the nascar base. obama leads romney 49-42 among nascar enthusiasts, according to the new zogby poll. can you explain that? >> because thurston howell doesn't drive a car. it's
the word military strike. ronald reagan wouldn't avoid military strike. i think jimmy carter the regime is not taken seriously. i believe when the iranians look at ronald reagan they saw something differently and released the hostages. >> seems like a dispute in the line in the sand. you're not taking the president at his word but a lot of people will. >> i'm not taking -- i have taken his word. the word containment means military power. sanctions are here. they could go to here. much more significant sanctions could mean what he is talking about unless he clarifies. >> you believe -- >> you're interpreting containment to mean military power. i'm saying he hasn't said that. he didn't clarify that. >> how far down -- i mean, when do you stop diplomacy? you're saying sanctions aren't working as well as they should because of -- should you keep going? >> i'm not sure he should announce that publicly but i think he should have an agreement with president netanyahu on what the bright line test is and no confusion between those two men because we don't israel to take action if it didn't have
and dramatic and the person changes the party. ronald reagan changed the republican party. bill clinton changed the direction of the republican party. barack obama put a stomp on the democratic party in part of who he was and what he represented about the future, and what his election would represent about the country. but romney has put no stamp at all on the republican party. >> in fact... >> the republican party has stamped it's he'll on his forehead. >> that's what i was going to say. they starched him, branded him if you will. you also say that you don't think that the republican presidential candle dates from years past would have even come close saying what mitt romney said in that video behind closed doors about the 47%. what makes you say that? >> i just don't think that that degree of resentment and rage had percolated up to that level that it has in these last two or three years. you know, george w. bush, yes he favored the rich in his tax policies, there's no question about that, but he didn't drive a hatred of poor people. he didn't drive a narrative about, you know, working class
and so his policies are not proposals that are open to negotiations. for instance, ronald reagan had policies that were always open to negotiations, with tip o'neil, and they worked things out. this is not the way this president works, it's either his way or nothing happens. stuart: all right, i would say you've harshly characterized the president "the amateur". how would you characterize mitt romney so far the way his campaign is going and presents himself to the public. >> well, sadly, i don't think he's exactly been the pro. i don't think he's been the master. i think he's shown a lot of amateurism as well, running for president. stuart: political amateurism, not policy. >> oh, no, the policies, i think are solid, as the rock of gibralter. i think we see him stumbling, doing things that are not in his own political interests. he seems to have a bit of a tin ear. i think he's gotten better, but he still has a long way to go. stuart: can i ask how the book is going? sold a lot, hasn't it. >> the book is going fantastically, 20 weeks, number two on the new york times best seller list
. >> third world dictators behave like this if ronald reagan when the president? remember. maybe romney is taking a page out of that playbook. mike reagan is with us. varney and company, 920 eastern. ♪ ♪ lou: joining me now, the "a-team" great to have you with us. let me start with you. the president's speech today, he did not in conjunction with the state of israel say they are allied. he did not talk or mention once radical islam. or radical islamists, and he did not specifically call the attack against our consulates and the assassination of our ambassador a murder. he referred to it as a killing. what in the world? what is this administration thinking? >> i think this is a much tougher speech and he has ever delivered on this subject. i was really surprised. lou: this is the 2-week e anniversary of the murder of an american ambassador. >> is not want to talk about that. lou: i don't care what he wants to talk about. there are lots of things we don't want to talk about. does he not have the volition the talk? a eulogy for the ambassador. >> i read the speech. lou: i'm sorry, was
they create jobs. haven't we tried that? not even ronald reagan could preach that. that was nearly 30 years ago. >> we're going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow the wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. in theory some were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing. and that's crazy. do you think the millionaire ought to pay more than the bus driver or less? >> the details in the tax returns are at odds with the fiscal police of his own running mate. romney's returns show holdings in many foreign accounts including ireland and the cayman islands. let's roll it back in 2010, paul ryan told the truth about offshore accounts. >> we don't want to have a situation where we are penalizing businesses for keeping their money, capital, and headquarters and manufacturing facilities in america. so then rather than having ireland and the cayman islands be the haven for capital formation, why don't we make it america? >> more than 800 pages of romney's tax returns, two-thirds are devoted to foreign investments. maybe this is why
came under the most conservative president in our lifetime -- ronald reagan. he approved or signed into law the simpson bill that provided the opportunity for about 3 million people who were then in the country undocumented to legalize their status. we're talking about 11 million to 12 the people now that are undocumented in the united states. i think the extreme -- the most extreme right of the republican party understands that if 11 million to 12 million people are able to legalize their status and become voters, it will change the political landscape of america for decades to come. they understand it could spell doom of the republican party for a generation to come. and i think that is why they're struggling so much against it, just as they did back in 1986 with the first comprehensive immigration reform. i think there is a political reason for this the vehement opposition to basically adjusting the status for folks there really for the most part are not criminals, are hard- working people. they were forced to, by a variety of reasons, to leave their countries, and they are cont
not help when ronald reagan -- reaganomics was presumed to create a lot of wealth for the middle class? no. the median wage began to stagnate. trickle down economics is a complete fraud. >> to professor reich's point, he says he thinks that perception is getting through to the electorate. "washington post" went to ohio near where i used to live and they interviewed voters there, and the thing that kept coming up for voters is romney is for the millionaires. people are getting that message. they're understanding at a basic level what the professor is saying there. the thing that's so strange to me, we had this deal in the country, we had this idea, we'll have unrestrained capitalism, which generally leads to these sorts of concentrations of wealth that we've seen, but on the other hand we'll have bigger profits and we can better take care of the people who are falling behind. well, now that we have the unrestrained capitalism, they want to cut out that safety net. the ryan budget, 62% of the cuts from programs that benefit the poor. so you're having this huge accumulation of wealth and then
the question that ronald reagan put so succinctly and is so brilliantly, are you better off than you were four years ago? or maybe even better, judy, is the country better off than it was four years ago? they will ask that question as they always do in these referendum elections. they will come up with their answer. >> woodruff: you know, on that point, bob, you call for the candidates to campaign with an eye to governing. to think ahead to what it's going to be like if they're elected, if they're serving. are they doing that in this election, in this campaign? >> no, i don't think they're doing that. if you believe, as i do -- and others may not -- that these elections are referendums, then it means that the incumbent needs to run on his record. the effort to dismantle and destroy the image and the standing of his opponent, that doesn't really make a lot of sense. it's harmful actually in terms of how he's going to bring the country together once he's re-elected, if he is re-elected. in the case of the challenger, he needs to... if you take my thesis, what he says isn't going to make a huge a
're on the side of people who wanted to change that thee ok si but they stayed challenge. when ronald reagan called the soviet union the evil empire that gave them heart. that needs to be prevented. you have worries about particularly in syria, chemical weapons stock piles. you have attacks on embassies in libya and elsewhere around the world. this is exactly why it is so dangerous and so wrong to be playing these political games for the armed services. we need to have a strong economy and national defense. but the last thing we need to be doing is having these devastating cuts to our military readiness and that's what has to happen is stop these devastating cuts, come up with the cuts that have the right priority and make sure the men and women protecting our safety and our freedoms here have the best armments, the best equipment and making sure we get those good paying jobs and technology and defense here in virginia and not use then am a pon to raise taxes. >> no one's talking about using the military or veterans as pons, i mean, i haven't heard that stated except george kind of throw in
thinking, hey, ronald reagan said something kind of wacky, that'll destroy his presidency, it didn't. my advice to the romney campaign, we should write blogposts and say, hey, can you believe obama said that? the romney campaign needs to criticize president obama's policies and say what they would do instead. jon: so you're saying that they need to be more forward looking instead of looking in the rearview mirror every week? >> yes. i think if you look at the polls in detail, if you look at the inside, some of the questions, people aren't happy with the way the country is, but they're not similarly willing to say -- simply willing to say things are so horrible that whoever replaces him is going to be better. and people still blame president bush for the meltdown, so romney has a task, more subtle, complicated and challenging task, really, than i think his own campaign thought. they thought don't make mistakes, be acceptable, we'll win. it's not proving to be that simple which means that the camr challenge of making a positive change for their ayen da. i think they can do it, but they nee
of ronald reagan's 1984 re-election campaign and has had major roles in nine other national campaigns and joe trippi, former campaign manager for howard dean. gentlemen, welcome. >> thank you. megyn: why is he doing this? i'll start with you, ed. why is he the first american president in two decades to not meet with any world leaders in the general assembly? >> i think he's trying to run out the clock. he's got a slight lead in this election, he doesn't want to get into dialogue that may lead to something embarrassing. he has this disaster on his hand, we had an american ambassador and three other members of our state department killed just three weeks ago. we've got chaos going on there, american flags being burned, and i think he sort of wants to pretend like it's not happening on my watch, and i think that's an irresponsible place to be, but i don't think he could choose who he wanted to meet with, and i think he wasn't ready to do that. he just wants to debate and move on. megyn: joe, i understand that it's an election season, but we also have serious world events going on. he did

time. ronald reagan supported foreign aid. george h.w. bush and george w. bush did as well. look, i grew up in dubai and understand the power of american dollars overseas, whether it comes from u.s. foreign aid or from ivate bus.sines but what i do disagree with and what i think the governor will disagree with is we probably need to stop funding countries that clearly aren't working in our interest. >> give me a name tor two. >> i think if you look at the present course being run in egypt or even in pakistan, i think we need to put some restrictions on our dollars being spent there. >> because the u.s. does give more than $1 billion a year to each of these countries, almost $2 billion to pakistan, donna. is that money well spent or money thrown away? >> i think it's important that we do leverage our foreign dollars, whether we're giving them $1 billion or less than that. and that it's an important leverage to use in our diplomat toolbox. but at a time where most persons are feeling the pressure of this recession, or still feeling the pressure, there's no question that they're going
, and that has been consistent, certainly, since fdr perhaps. 1980 was different. ronald reagan was even with president carter. they each got 40%. and congressman anderson, i think, got 20%. and that had been, i mean, those numbers were just historic, that -- and it may or may not have influenced the race. but it did have a sort of post-camp david ethos. and specifically it had to do with yet another u.n. resolution in which the u.n. passed a resolution that, essentially, equated jerusalem as being occupied. and the occupation of that, of jerusalem, that issue and carter, perhaps not strongly preventing that in the way that president obama -- >> not only did he not strongly prevented it, he directed the u.n. not to vote for it. how do i know that? because he called me up. i was coming back from china, and i was on the plane. and the captain comes over, and he says the president would like you to call him before you talk to the press when we land. so i said, okay. so when we land -- [laughter] when we land, i called up this number. the president took the call. and first a little chitchat,
legum from think progress. ralph burns wants us to know i remember when ronald reagan was governor of california. his mantra was that people should pay taxes until it hurts. and then an enterprising undergraduate student from u.c. berkeley did some research and discovered that he paid no taxes at all! one year. yes and don't you think that's exactly the case with mitt romney? of course, we'll never know until he releases his tax returns. and he still hasn't released them all of course. the "full court press." stay with us. >> announcer: this is the "bill press show."
